It means the number 2 cylinder has a misfire. Some things you can check are the condition of the spark plugs and if the spark plug wire on that cylinder is leaking.

You can also check the output of the coil to see if it is generating enough spark.

You can also listen to the fuel injector with a screwdriver. Place the metal part on the injector body and the handle end on your ear. Does it make the same clicking sound as the other injectors?

I have a 97 Dodge Ram 1500 with a 5/9 in it I put plug wires on it and now it's popping and it lost power and it had a code po302 and Po 307

The P0302 code means that the cylinder 2 is misfiring or is randomly misfiring. Start by checking for intake leaks and if no leaks are found the next step is to replace the spark plugs on cylinder 2. If the problem persist more tests needs to be done. PO307 is the same thing except number 7 cylinder. Possible symptoms - Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)
- Lack/loss of power
- Hard start
- Engine hesitation

Po302 code comes on my 2002 chevy tahoe

The code means the computer has detected a drop in RPM for cylinder number 2. If you know compression is good, it has to be spark or fuel.
Have you checked for power and signal for the injector with a low voltage test light ? Do you know for a fact the coil is firing on that cylinder ?

2004 f150 5.4l dtc po171 and po302

po302 is engine missfire on #1 cylinder, this engine is bad on ignition coils going bad, don't try removing spark plugs because they will break off in cylinder head and then you have a big problem, p0171 is a lean condition, possible bad oxygen sensor

My 2002 envoy has a miss that just started==was driving on the freeway for about 40 miles @70 pulled n a station to get a drink ==started it back up and it started missing like a dead plug or coil i...

2002 Envoy sle 4.2 L straight 6. Random misfire(PO300). After erasing codes for several days, I finally took my car on the highway and ran it at high speed(70+) for about 4 to 5 miles. Check engine light came on as before but this time it gave me(PO305). Random misfire cylinder 5. So I switched coil 5 with coil 2. Went back out on the highway and repeated as before. This time it gave me(PO302). This was telling me I had a bad coil. Replacing one coil pack solved the problem. The professionals told me low fuel pressure would not give me random misfire, but rather a O2 code because the engine is running lean. Thank you------------------------------------ thank you very much.

What does po302 mean on a 1999 plymouth neon

Check Cylinder pressure. PO302 is a cylinder misfire code. you have 4 cylinders in your car. You need to find out whats causing the misfire, could be something simple as changing sparkplugs... could be something a bit more advanced like changing rocker/lifter arm.. It's not something that you would want to drive around with for a while, it could mess more up than it would cost to fix right now.

What does that mean and why does the service engine light stays on

The service engine light is on because the computer has seen a problem with the operation of the engine systems, what happens is the computer is always monitoring all systems and when theres a problem the computer stores a code explaining what system has failed, for example only there may be a code po302 cylinder 2 misfiring. this would tell you that the number 2 cylinder is misfiring, with a little testing you would then check it out to see why this is happening.the first thing you need to do is have the codes read, there are many auto part stores that will scan the computer and give you a print out of the codes, if you write back and list the codes i would be able to help you further, good day.

I have a 2000 chrysler concorde that the engine light just popped on - the error codes are po302, po420, po340

P0302-cylinder #2 misfire detected
P0420- catalyst efficiency below threshold bank 1
P0340-No cam signal at PCM.
The Cam sensor most likely needs to be replaced first. Clear the codes after that and drive and see what comes back on.

Zeevert was right about all but one thing. Cylinder two is the rear middle cylinder on a V6 or the second one from the passenger side on a 4 cylinder.
